State-Funded Training

The Employment Training Panel provides financial assistance to California businesses to support customized worker training to: 

  •  Attract and retain businesses that contribute to a healthy California economy;
  •  Provide workers with secure jobs that pay good wages and have opportunities for advancement;
  •  Assist employers to successfully compete in the global economy; and
  •  Promote the benefits and ongoing investment in training among employers.

Program Overview

The Employment Training Panel (ETP) is a business and labor supported state agency that assists employers in strengthening their competitive edge by providing funds to off-set the costs of job skills training necessary to maintain high-performance workplaces.

The program is performance-based, providing funds for trainees who successfully complete training and are retained in well-paying jobs for a specific period of time.

The program is funded by the Employment Training Tax paid by California employers, and targets firms threatened by out-of-state and international competition. Employers match training funds awarded by ETP for training existing workers.

   Do you qualify?

  • Manufacturer, Assembler, or Processor
  • Service provider or Distributor with 25% or more of revenues from customers located outside California
  • Service provider to California customers that competes with out-of-California providers
  • Headquarters providing support to 25% or more of overall revenue, operations, offices, branches, stores, franchises or employees located outside California
  • Hotel, Destination resort, Convention / Conference Center with 25% or more of revenue from out of California visitors
  • Call Center with 25% or more of volume originating outside of California

 For all other companies; funding can be paid for trainees whose primary responsibility is to deliver a service, provided the trainee earns at least the State average minimum compensation.
